In the MOOD Episode 92 Live from Last Night On Earth at The BPM Festival 2016 – Listen here

Nicole Moudaber’s start to 2016 has been full throttle; ringing in NYE at Heart Nightclub in Miami, an open to close set at Stereo Montreal then flying south of the border playing two shows during the music industry’s pinnacle winter event, The BPM Festival in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Nicole’s special beachfront sunset set during Sasha’s Last Night On Earth at Martina Beach Club can be watched via Be-At TV here. She also had the honor of playing an extended final set at the annual Official BPM Closing party at Blue Parrot closing out the 10-day marathon festival. Now the MOOD Record’s boss has released her first full-length solo EP in several months, ‘Silent Sigh’ EP available exclusively via Beatport.
“Silent Sigh” kicks off the EP with an unhurried build, filled with Nicole’s characteristically dusty textures wrapping around stoic kicks. Stark, metallic designs echo in and out, before an even darker, sub-laden kick pressure pushes the track into a powerful climax. “Move A Little Closer” displays Nicole’s skill for utilising vocals to forge a sense of intimacy and atmosphere without letting up on either pace or power. A thudding bassline and hi-hats underpin the track’s whispering, seductive samples, whilst gradual ice blast pads add depth to the production. A long-player at 10 minutes, the “Move A Little Closer” layers of build-up pay off with a mind-bending, extended breakdown of space age synths.
Closing the EP is “More Ways Than One”, with a dose of undiluted techno at its best. Deep and dark, “More Ways Than One” shows Nicole’s skill for arranging her productions so that every detail has maximum effect. Initially released as a free download to show Nicole’s appreciation for everyone who supported her throughout 2015.
There’s no limits for Nicole’s 2016 horizon. This February she’ll be playing the US debut of Awakenings NYC at Hammerstein Ballroom on Valentine’s Day back-to-back with Victor Calderone, in addition to North American tour stops at Shrine in Connecticut, Philly’s Rumor, Story in Miami and returning to Mexico for Insomniac’s EDC Mexico. Stay tuned for more information as Nicole will bring her annual MoodDAY and MoodNIGHT events to Miami Music Week 2016! Fans can rejoice as the techno connoisseur makes her awaited return to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival where Nicole will perform with Skin of Skunk Anansie both weekends in the desert. Nicole and Skin released their acclaimed collaborative ‘BREED’ EP  in fall 2015.
Nicole Moudaber’s ‘Silent Sigh’ EP is out now exclusively via Beatport.

Jerry Heller Talks About Kraftwerk in New Interview on

•December 17, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Jerry Heller’s Hidden Electronic Music Connection



In this new interview recently published on with veteran music industry executive Jerry Heller in which he discusses his history with electronic music icons Kraftwerk in full detail for the first time ever.

In the interview, Heller describes how he produced the group’s first American tour in 1975 and charged their flights, hotel rooms, and expenses on his American Express card.

Says Heller, “They were probably three decades ahead of their time. I don’t think there’s ever been another group that was that far out of sync or that far ahead of their time than Kraftwerk.”

With Jerry Heller all over the headlines in 2015 discussing his history in rap music via N.W.A and Eazy-E over and over again, this new interview exposes a part of Heller’s story previously untold.

Carl Cox

Carl Cox is set to send Halloween weekend into the record books with a trio of appearances this October. The United States is a favorite playing field for the legend, and he’ll be delivering his brand of musical mayhem at some of his best-loved haunts on Oct 29, 30 and 31st.

October 29-San Francisco is the first stop where Carl will reunite with old and new friends at Public Works. Always a massive show, Public Works has long been a SF goldmine of incredible music and people that come to dance the night away. Carl will not disappoint, but you may be as but you may be as tickets are SOLD OUT.


CC 10-29


October 30– LA brings Carl in for round 2 where he’ll surely set the weekend off right at Sound Nightclub. LA always brings the party people out for Carl and this day will be no exception.

CC 10-30


October 31– Las Vegas is the winning trifecta in this series, bringing Carl full circle to wind things up properly at Light in Mandalay Bay. Always a bangin’ after-hours that goes full-on any night Carl graces the decks, but expect something even more special from the maestro on this night, where he’ll undoubtedly perfect many a fan’s All Hallows Eve!

Behrouz – ‘Endless Summer’ Out Now on All Day I Dream’s Summer Sampler

Miami, FLBehrouz is a true veteran of house and electronic music having been involved in music for over 30 years, he needs no introduction. Recently opening a club entitled Do Not Sit on the Furniture in Miami 2 years ago, he brings forth his latest original as a part of volume 2 of the All Day I Dream summer sampler.

Released on digital and vinyl prior to Burning Man and the end of summer, the ADID summer sampler also features tracks by Bedouin, Yokoo, Alexi Delano, Lauren Ritter, and many others. The founder and creator of All Day I DreamLee Burridge’s favorite and most played tracks from the compilation happens to be Behrouz’s ‘Endless Summer’ which was recently featured on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show.

‘Endless Summer’ begins with a steady cadence slowly rolling in with melancholic and atmospheric undertones. The harmony continues to enrapture you by creating an emotional warmth that is perfect to encapsulate the overall vibe of the summer of 2015. A subtle bassline then begins to take form as additional melodious elements take hold further capturing the sentiment. The track then begins to taper off adding in a few percussion breaks before coming to a close.

All Day I Dream explores beautiful, emotional and melancholic shades of House and Techno through its label’s releases, events and artists.
Endless Summer’ is out now on All Day I Dream and available on Beatport and all major digital outlets.

FTampa releases “031” on Doorn Records

•August 1, 2015 • Leave a Comment


Hardwell’s been teasing you with it, and now Sander Van Doorn is letting you have it. FTampa & The Fish House’s „031” has been played by EDM’s frontrunners like Hardwell (at EDC Las Vegas, Chicago’s Spring Awakening and on his „Hardwell On Air” radio show), R3hab, Martin Garrix among others. That’s a lot of ears. This release gives the sub kick fueled big-room sound a refreshing breath of the Brazilian breeze. 031’s drop sounds like an oiled up Brazilian butt where most tracks in the genre sound like they’re dropping the listener onto a concrete floor. FTampa and long time collaborator The Fish House contrast the nighttime intensity of the drop with a feeling of rushing white water during the break. These two sections work together seemlessly with the rush of the break carrying the listener into the parade of the drop.

Almost two months ago, Tomorrowland Brasil released their most recent hair-raising aftermovie. It’s no secret that EDM is booming in Brasil. FTampa is holding the country on his back as he tours the world playing clubs and festivals. With 031’s glittery break and slippery drop, FTampa, Brasil’s pride, gives us another reason to regard him as Brasil’s most prominent EDM export. It’s productions like these that have gotten him support from the industry’s biggest names like David Guetta, Hardwell and Martin Garrix as well as placed his tunes on the soundtracks of Playstation and XBox games.

Struggles (Original Mix) Preview

Struggles (Future Groove Mix) Preview


While their black and white giant counterparts face extreme daily Struggles, this British native duo have consistently proven themselves to be an exception to the rule. Unique in every way and turning heads wherever they go, Pink Panda are one species not about to be wiped out as they bring their distinctive sound and image to the forefront of contemporary dance music.Kicking off the second release on their own imprint Pandamoniam, the original Struggles mix combines relentless and unforgiving synths with driving bass that make this the perfect peak time crowd pleaser. Enlisting the unfaltering yet haunting vocals of Falinski+Griffin, Struggles packs a punch you’ve come to expect from a pair who take the roof off every party they play. Dedicated to producing cutting edge dance music, their commitment to the cause couldn’t be clearer as they also offer up another of their ‘Future Groove’ mixes. This mix takes a more driving techy route that’ll whip anyone within ear shot into a frenzied future groove and straight to the dancefloor. With previous Beatport success under these bear’s belts and BlasterjaxxCedric Gervais and Judge Jules among their list of supporters, Struggles is predicted to hit the nail on the head once again. They’ve previously taken their sound to Ibiza, Greece, Germany, Taiwan, Bahrain, Seoul and Jakarta but bangers like this in their record box is evidence that sightings of these Pink Pandas will become an ever more regular occurrence…
